Roller Rocker vs. Roller Tip Rocker

Any of you guys have feelings one way or the other towards either Roller or Roller-Tip rockers?

I've done a little reading but honestly can't find much as far as pro-vs-con concerning the two. The most reliable, would be standard rockers, but sinc I"m rebuliding/upgradeing I figure that I would upgrade the rockers as well. Which of the two are better? more reliable?

I guess the biggest two things that seem to resonate the most are

1. don't buy aluminum it's not reliable
2. roller rockers need to be adjusted from time to time where as roller-tip do not.

Am I way off here? Can I buy a set of roller rockers, install them and just close the top on the motor for 200k miles like you can the stock ones?

If any of you guys with experience with these two would could lend some insight, one way or the other, or just to tell me I'm a noob and need to do some more research would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
